This week......

Simple Woman’s Daybook for June 23rd


Outside my window. . .my tomato plants are thriving. Maybe I could get the hang of this gardening thing if we had more sunlight in our backyard! :)

I am thinking. . .a lot about self discipline this week.

I am thankful for. . .25 years of marriage with dh.

From the kitchen. . .chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, tocana & rice. Last night we made chicken and beef shish ka bobs and homemade pita chips with yogurt dip.

I am creating. . .a new and improved laundry room! ( and a couple curtains this week).

I am going. . .out for dinner with dh and Al tomorrow! ( and mom and dad & dh on Sunday to the restaurant our reception was at :)

I am wearing. . .black sport bermuda's, a green t, a baseball cap and barefeet. :) It's been a toss up between tennis shoes and flip flops today.

I am reading. . . "All Over but the Shoutin"

I am hoping. . .I can watch another episode of "John Adams" tonight. As angry as HBO makes me at times, I've got to admit this is a stellar work.

I am hearing. . . Ella chattering, Tim talking, Ratatouille on tv, Manny snuggling on my lap ( he always makes some sort of noise-- even when he is just sitting ;).

Around the house. . .re-organizing the kitchen and cleaning up the basement.

One of my favorite things. . .going for a walk with the littles ( or any of the kids!)....Manny is especially cute because he usually gets out of the stroller or wagon and RUNS the whole way ( and we don't just go for a leisurely, short stroll. ) Oh--to be able to bottle that energy!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . Hopefully Mass on Friday and getting to hear Fr Frank Pavone, maybe a trip to the zoo ( probably next week:) swimming lessons with Jed starts on Saturday. This is major grocery shopping week, and it looks like the swingset WILL be up!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you. . .whoops---see top of page :)

Why do you call Uncle Tim DH?

it stands for Dork Head, but she told me she means it in a nice way.
